Orienteering race 2:35:27 [3] 13.2 km (11:47 / km)
shoes: LaSportiva Raptor

A slight slow start, and maybe not as fast as I would have wanted, but until control 7, I did really well for technical map reading and bearing taking. Quick analysis of map and terrain at #3 and #5 got my bearings back in 3 minutes each. Then I didn't read terrain at #8 despite passing just next to re-entrant (was not looking around). Bad pace counting. Lost 8 minutes. Complete lack of trail reading from which I sprang made me lose 17 minutes at #9, that was horrible. Okay until #13, saw the second stream but didn't follow it, lost 9 minutes going too far. Minor but frustrating errors at 14 and 15, then last control, getting lost right around it. Augh. Not a good end to the season. Lots to analyse and try to learn from.
